A group calling themselves concerned citizens from the Northern Region has rebuffed the arrangement by the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) to have an orientation and training seminar.
FAM announced that it will hold training workshop for club officials of playing in the Simama Northern Region Football League as well as Northern Region Football Association League Administrators (NRFAL) to train them on how to run and handle football matters.
This follows the wrangle that engulfed the administration issues of the league for the past two seasons and to be precise with issues that erupted towards the end of the season to declare champion of which a lot of soccer followers accused the reigning committee of being incompetent and bias.
Spokesperson for the concerned citizens Christopher Nyambose, told a local radio on Friday that they are not interested to have the workshop.
“What we want now is not training, we want mediation talks. FAM being a parent is supposed to bring both concerned parties together and hear our outcry and unite us” said Nyambose.
“If they already planned to train soccer and league administrators, let them start in the South or Centre because we feel we are safe” he added.
Asked on what could be the best solution to end the northern region impulse, Nyambose said as concerned group they have agreed that the NRFAL Committee be dissolved because teams have lost confidence in them.
“The only solution is that the committee must go because we have lost confidence in them and that if they stay, we won’t have confidence either. They have done their part and the must go” emphasized Nyambose.
The wrangles surrounding the northern region league nearly costed the region sponsorship as thecurrent sponsor Bishop Abraham Simama threatened to pull out sponsorship. He sponsors the league to the tune of K3 Million.
